    SATA Hardrives

    I figured I should make the jump to SATA.

    My backup hardrive went down again, the model itself is too unreliable. I'm going to RMA it again, but I'm gonna get new hardrives.

    I plan to get two SATA hardrives, keep my maxtor as a backup. And toss out the seagate.

    I want the SATA hardrive to be working on my later to be purchased AM2 system. Will SATA 3 GB/sec work on my motherboard at 1.5 GB? Or will I just need to find a way to endure and toss the SATA hardrives in with my larger purchase?

    In the end I want two SATA hardrives in a RAID array with my maxtor as my backup hardrive.

    I am looking at buying two of THESE

    yes but you may need to use the compatibility jumper setting on the drive.

    For acoustics,
    Western Digital models are usually quiet.

    On a side note,
    With the last four mobos dealt with,
    Noticed that when using a
    Slipstreamed Windows2000 CD with unofficial SP5.1,
    and/or
    Slipstreamed Windows XP CD with SP2,
    The annoying procedure of having to use a floppy disc with SATA driver was not necessary.
    "I know nothing."
    Cheers.
